TwitterFacebook

Kit Harington has clarified comments he made in 2016 about his experience with “sexism” as a male actor, in a new interview with The Guardian 

The Game of Thrones star said he “was wrong” to conflate his experiences as a man with that of the very real sexism women face in the film industry. 

As Harington told The Sunday Times in May of last year:

Harington’s comments drew criticism for framing his experience and the experiences of women working in show business today as equal. It’s a deeply unfair comparison, considering women in the industry, in addition to being under hired and underpaid, are routinely subjected to horrific sexual harassment and assault by powerful industry men.  Read more…

The Galaxy J7 (2016) is one of Samsung’s mid-rangers that made its debut on the market more than a year ago. The smartphone is still running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, as Samsung hasn’t said anything about a possible Nougat update.

The good news is Samsung doesn’t have to say anything as long as we can crawl the internet for info. The Galaxy J7 (2017) has been recently listed at Wi-Fi …

Samsung Galaxy J3, J5, J7: 2017 vs 2016 versions

The Samsung Galaxy J series is a relative newcomer to the Samsung smartphone family. That being said, it does cater to users that don’t require the best of the best from their handsets, and would rather save a few hundred bucks.

That’s why the series enjoys a moderate success globally, and it’s being upgraded for another year. But what exactly are the differences between last year’s Galaxy J smartphones and the current generation?

Samsung had been testing Android 7.0 Nougat on the Galaxy A5 (2016) since the beginning of the year. Although the new Galaxy A series came ahead and received Nougat updates slightly earlier, the last year Galaxy A phones are slowly started to get the update as well.

Tim Cook actually made $145 Million in 2016, the most of any S&P 500 CEO

On the surface, Apple’s CEO pay for last year was “just” $8.75 million, hurling Tim Cook towards the bottom third of all CEOs in the list of the S&P 500. This figure, however, only accounts for the direct salary and bonuses received plus some the amount of some of the inevitable executive privileges. The more interesting story, however, are the 1.26 million shares he got awarded as an incentive when he became Apple’s CEO in 2011.

Those are granted with various performance strings attached to be vested fully, and in the case of Apple a fifth were tied to the …

AT&T this week started carrying a new, affordable Android 7 Nougat smartphone made by Samsung: the Galaxy J7 (2017). Mind you, this is not the Galaxy J7 (2017) that was officially unveiled last month in Europe, despite the fact that it has the same name. Confusing, we know.

BLU rolling out Android 6.0 Marshmallow for Life One X (2016)

Despite the fact that it’s 2017 and in just a couple of months Google is expected to launch Android O, some companies continue to deliver Marshmallow updates to their smartphones. Naturally, that’s not a bad thing, but it’s definitely quite unexpected.

BLU is one of the handset makers that have decided one of its smartphones, the Life One X, is worth getting an update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. BLU Life One X (2016) was originally released on the market back in December 2015, which makes it almost two years old.
